After some 20 years, federal police officer Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) returns to his hometown of Kiewarra to attend the funeral of his childhood friend Luke who killed his wife and child and then took his own life. It‘s clear from the start that Falk is reluctant to return because he isn‘t welcome in the town. But following pleas from Luke's parents who don't believe in their son's guilt, he stays and informally reopens the case. Falk thus begins to uncover the strange circumstances not only of Luke's death, but also long-hidden local secrets, including the death of a former classmate that some residents would rather leave alone, and which he himself is implicated in.

This mystery drama is set in the atmosphere of the remote Australian outback in a town which is plagued by ongoing drought. The film was based on the bestselling novel of the same name by one of Australia's most successful contemporary writers, Jane Harper, and was one of the box office hits of 2021 in Australia.
